Tea Name: TongQin, written as 桐琴 in Chinese characters, is the third tea in the following series:
1. 伯牙 (BoYa), sheng cha
2. 子期 (ZiQi), sheng cha
3. 桐琴 (TongQin), shou cha.
“GaoShanLiuShuiYuZhiYin” is a well-known story from over 2000 years ago in China. When BoYa played the zither, ZiQi was drawn by the melody and could discern when it depicted towering mountains or babbling streams. Thus, ZhiYin (知音, understanding melody) has since been a term for close friends.
This tea is made from leaves picked from GuShu tea trees on BuLang tea mountain in 2015 and processed into shou cha the same year. It was then stored in a warehouse in MengHai County, YunNan Province, to air out. The tea was pressed into cakes in May 2018.
